Making affordable housing opportunities more accessible to Los Angeles residents is core to our mission. However, we do not own or manage rental or ownership properties. Our role is to provide the funding and partner with developers and social services agencies to build, preserve and maintain quality affordable housing. We also refer residents to the right resources so they can find the best fit for their needs whether they are looking for rental units or to buy a home.
Here is an example of how our work impacts lives. Our Affordable Housing Trust Fund provided funding to developer partner Urban Housing Communities to build Crossings at 29th Street.
